Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Zinfandel opens with a red currant and vanilla oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and round. The flavor profile is a fruit forward black raspberry with notes of cinnamon, black cherry, and black pepper. The finish is dry and it's slightly prolonged. This fruity Zin would pair well with Savoury Lane's five fruit stuffed chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The ripest of our Peachy Zins and a favorite amongst our fans. Big red and dark berry fruit, bright acidity, hints of chocolate and earthy minerals balanced well with black and white pepper.
